Weekly Parent Letter

March 16, 2023

I would like to thank each and every one of you who helped with our accreditation process!  There are so many people who came to clean the school, brought food in for the team, and others who faithfully serve our school each day through their service and thoughtful prayer.  Thank you so much.  I do not yet have the results of the accreditation team, but I do plan to share them with the Education Committee on Tuesday evening.

We will be having our next Education Committee meeting on Tuesday, March 21st at 6 pm at the school.   Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.  

Our next school Mass is Wednesday, March 22nd at 10:30am.  The staff will be leading us.  

Penny panic will begin next Wednesday, March 22nd and will run through Wednesday March 29th.  This is a friendly game where the classes compete against each other, ultimately seeing who can bring in the most coins for charity.  In essence, students can put pennies and pop tabs in their homeroom jars.  Each penny or pop tab counts for 1 pt.  They can however, put “silver” money in other classroom jars, these count as negative points.  The classroom with the most overall points wins!  The official rules will be sent home on Monday.  The coins will be donated to the charity Student Council chooses. 

Report cards will go home on Thursday, March 23rd in the family folders. 

Next Friday begins a very busy few days…    

  • We will have a dress up day on Friday, March 24th.  It will be “crazy hat day”. 

  • The annual Science Fair will be held on Friday, March 24th.  The exhibits will be open to the public between 10:30 and 11:30 pm. 

  • Living Stations will be presented at both 1 pm and 7 pm on Friday, March 24th.

  • The Dance Party will be held on Sunday, March 26th from 3-5 pm.  All children between the ages 3 - 6 are invited to attend.   

The Education Committee will be hosting its Fish Fry on Friday, March 31st.  More information will be sent home next week.  

Mrs. Traen has informed me that she will be retiring in the spring and will not be returning to St. Edward School for the 2023-24 school year.  That leaves us with a teaching opening for next fall.  I have not officially posted this opening but will do so next week.  If you know of someone who would be a great addition to our school, please share this opportunity with them.  We would like to thank Mrs. Traen for her many years of service to St. Edward School!

St. Edward School will again be offering Summer Care from 7:15 am – 6 pm on weekdays to students between the ages of 5-12.  Registrations are available on our web-site, in RenWeb or by contacting the office.

May God Bless,

Mrs. Garvey
